Virgin Vs. Remy Hair

Virgin Vs. Remy Hair

Virgin. Remy. Remy. Virgin? If you’ve been shopping for quality hair extensions, chances are these two terms have probably caused you some confusion and conflict. Like to begin with, what exactly is virgin hair? Remy hair? What’s the difference between the two and how do I get a hold of a genuine product? Let me explain!

What is Virgin Hair?

Virgin hair means that the hair has never been chemically altered in an way. This is the purest form of hair extensions because there has never been any added stress from coloring, perms, relaxers, straightening treatments, and so on done to the hair. This is a premium characteristic among hair extensions because this means the hair is in its most natural and healthiest state.

What is Remy Hair?

Remy hair refers to the direction that the cuticle is laying. From the time it is cut from a donor’s head, the hair strands are kept aligned in the natural direction the hair lays to ensure that the cuticles are facing in the same direction. Once the direction of the cuticle is disturbed, the hair becomes severely matted or tangled. True remy hair is considered to be a luxurious feature that gives off the most natural look and feel that can last up to two years with proper care.

Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You

Because Remy and Virgin hair are such high quality characteristics of hair extensions, unfortunately vendors tend to toss these terms around lightly and deceitfully label their products. They claim that their products are remy hair or 100% virgin hair when in reality, it’s far from it. If a hair vendor says their hair is “remy” or “virgin” but they camouflage the disturbed alignment of the hair cuticles by either it stripping it and/or adding a silicone coating to it, this is does not qualify as remy or virgin hair. Although this process gives it a nice, temporary presentation, it wears off after only a few washes or with a few months use and will leave you with a tangled mess and the extensions are no longer functional.
